A new pedestrian bridge at Stonehill College (Easton, Mass.) has been named in honor of Rev. Thomas Feeley, C.S.C.
Fr. Feeley was a long-time philosophy professor and student mentor at Stonehill, where he served from 1962 until 1998, when he joined Holy Cross Family Ministries. He was national director at HCFM and then vice postulator for the Cause of the Canonization of Servant of God Patrick Peyton, C.S.C. Fr. Feeley died in 2004 and is buried with his fellow Holy Cross religious at the community cemetery adjacent to Stonehill.
Among those at the dedication ceremony for the new bridge Thursday were Rev. John Denning, C.S.C., president of the College, and Rev. Hugh Cleary, C.S.C., director of campus ministry. At the dedication ceremony, Director of Campus Ministry Rev. Hugh Cleary, C.S.C. said "Fr. Feeley was a bridge builder, both literally and figuratively. As a priest professor at Stonehill for nearly 40 years, he touched the lives of countless students, bridging their differences to cultivate a valuable part of who they were as neighbors and citizens on this campus."
